Superfund Site: MONITOR DEVICES, INC./INTERCIRCUITS, INC.
WALL TOWNSHIP, NJ
Superfund Site Profile
The Monitor Devices, Inc./Intercircuits, Inc. site is located in Wall Township, New Jersey. From 1977 to 1981, Monitor Devices/Intercircuits Inc. manufactured printed circuit boards at the 2-acre site. The process generated wastewater containing heavy metals such as copper and lead, as well as solvents and corrosive acids. Operators dumped wastewater either into a small, unlined pond, or directly on the ground at the rear of the buildings. Drums and plastic containers were improperly stored outdoors.
Facility operations contaminated groundwater with heavy metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are contaminants that evaporate easily in the air. Groundwater cleanup and monitoring are ongoing. Current human exposures at the site are under control.
